2017 | Attention Restoration through light & sound

A.R.T. is a light and sound environment that explores how public space can help people relax and free their mind. The design is inspired by Attention Restoration Theory. This theory shows how specific qualities of a natural environment have a restorative effect on people. We use dynamic light and sound to emphasise these qualities, so that their positive effect on people extends further into the nighttime environment. A.R.T. was shown at Glow 2016 (Eindhoven the Netherlands) and Klanglicht 2017 (Graz, Austria).

A.R.T. is a joint creation by Indre Kalinauskaite, Joep le Blanc, Randi Nuij and Studio Philip Ross, supported by the TU/e Intelligent Lighting Institute.
